Spotlight doesn't search all text in notes

Recommended Posts

Evernote 6.8 - Direct Download (i.e. Not AppStore)

MacOS 10.11.6

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015)

Last night I used Spotlight to search for Schlage which I know I have a text note for. The note was a web clipping from a review site. I was trying to share the details with my wife. Spotlight couldn't find the note. Whereas Evernote search did. I tried rebuilding my Spotlight Index. Still no luck. Other common things Spotlight finds.

I've not spotted a pattern yet for what Spotlight finds and what it doesn't.

Hi @Mark Levison

I would like to have you try recreating your Spotlight Search Index to see if that resolves the issue. Here's how:

1. Open Evernote on your Mac
2. Hold down the **option** key on your keyboard and select **Help** from the Mac Menu Bar
3. Select **Troubleshooting > Recreate Spotlight Search Index**

Please let me know how this works out for you.
